Today’s Image of the Day from NASA features the Namib Desert on the Atlantic Coast of Namibia.

The country is home to diverse wildlife, including the world’s largest cheetah population.

The western border of this southern African country is photographed from an altitude of 259 miles, as the International Space Station orbited over the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean.
